Elise had been chosen by the Birthless due to qualities that they had observed her portraying, and she followed that nature in vowing to help them in any way she could. The Birthless performed a pact with her, granting her the simple duty of maintaining the balance between Mortals, Gods, and Birthless. It was on this day that Dauoin feared he would not be able to protect mortals from new Gods, and Elise was forever called: the God of Balance.

“I did not come here to fight your wars for you… I came to put a stop to them, and if that means one thousand more years of decay and suffering on the planet... to stop your tyranny ... then so be it...”
The Goddess of Mana & Balance was tasked with policing the native users of mana and enforcing fairness among all creatures so that those without access to mana would not be enslaved by those who have it.
If you were to ask a monk of Elise who she is, they would tell you that she is the savior, and the martyr, of all things. They will also tell you that she now exists outside of reach in a moment between truth and lie where she is both pariah and insider of the way of the world. This is how we all should be so that one day, when we die, we may be lucky enough to live with Elise in this space of chaos and order in all its glory and perfect harmony.
After creating the worst calamity, the world had ever known she spent thousands of years trying to right the wrong. Without mana, but also being unable to die of old age, she was punished for her crimes by gods and mortals alike up until she gained her divinity back. Which she became the only other fully powered god outside of her grandson. She took on the role of the Goddess of Paths and now directs the flow of mana, ensuring that a place like The Abyss could not spread further than it already has.
She now lives on another plane of existence impossible to reach by mortals, birthless, and vagary. This was done so that no one would ever be able to disrupt balance ever again.
